MET 223 - Computer Integrated Machining
A continuation of Programming CNC Machine Tools. The emphasis of this course is on "Computer Assisted Part Programming." The course is designed to include students who have had no exposure to computer operations, but have knowledge of machine shop operations including CNC machine tools. MasterCAM and CadKey software are introduced. CAD software will be used to construct geometry database files of various parts. CAM software will be used to choose the machining process, assign tool parameters, define the tool path, give path verification, develop the post processor, and to transfer the CNC code to the CNC machine tool.
Prerequisite: MET 220 Programming CNC Machine Tools
2 Class Hours, 2 Laboratory Hours
Learning Outcomes of the Course:
Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Create basic 2D and 3D geometry using MaterCAM X.
2. Assign toolpaths to cut parts using MasterCAM X.
3. Create programs using the MasterCAM X-Fanuc post.
4. Transfer programs to a CNC machine.
5. Operate a CNC machine.
